Vasily Karasev, head-coach of Zenit Saint Petersburg and father of Sergey Karasev, said that his son will no longer play for the Nets next season. Brooklyn decided to not pick up the option on Karasev’s contract for 2016-2017 season, so Russian player will be an unrestricted free-agent this summer. In an interview with Izvestia.ru coach Karasev said: ‘Sergey is fine, he’s already working for the next season. It’s too early to say where he’ll play next season. We will consider all the options, both from NBA and Europe. One thing is for sure, Sergey won’t play for the Nets next season’

In an interview with Match TV, a Russian sports channel, Karasev said he thinks the Nets will pursue Blatt, who coached him on Team Russia in 2012, winning the bronze at the London Olympics. “There were no signs of trouble — Cleveland played in The Finals last season, and now ranks first in the conference. But it happens. I think Brooklyn will make every effort to get David. I know him and I am on good terms with him . Of course, his appointment would be a plus for me, ” Karasev said in an interview with the program, “Sports interest, “on the TV channel.

“My dad, he’s my biggest fan, so he has his own opinion. I can’t control what he says to the press. A lot of people want that I play, especially back home in Russia, so they have their own opinion,’’ Karasev said at morning shootaround before a game against the Celtics. “I’m with the Nets. I love this organization, I like Coach Hollins, so I just keep working hard. I’m just with this team right now. All my focus, all my mind is to win the game. That’s why I’m here.’’
